Venerable St. Mary of Egypt

Venerable St. Mary of Egypt was born in 344 somewhere in Egypt and at the age of twelve ran away to the city of Alexandria where she lived an extremely dissolute life. According to her words, she was driven only"by an insatiable and an irrepressible passion". After seventeen years of this lifestyle, she travelled to Jerusalem by boat for the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. She undertook the journey not for the religious reasons, but stating that she hoped to find in the pilgrim crowds at Jerusalem even more partners in her lust. She paid for her passage by offering her body to other pilgrims, and she continued her habitual lifestyle for a short time in Jerusalem.
